Stack secure documents

Additionally, users can search for entire text on the scanned document instead of jut looking for the title. Beside such helpful features, Google Stack app ensures complete security too. This app can protect useful documents with biometric security feature. These biometrics include a fingerprint or face unlock feature. Also, users can back up their scanned documents directly to Google Drive if required.

The best part is that this app does not promote in-app purchase or concept of ads (at least for now). Therefore, users can have a positive experience on this app. Currently, this Google Stack app is available for Android users in US only. Since this is an experimental app, therefore we don’t know if this app will reach out for mass usage or not. Also, there is no information whether this app will reach to users outside of the US. Even, there is no word regarding it’s availability on iOS platform.
